I hired Payne's Tree Service to remove three dead and/or dying trees (24" to 48" in circumference) from my backyard. I received four quotes from other companies and am very pleased with my decision to work with Steve. He provided a very fair estimate, was on time and very professional in outlining the cost for the job, and best of all, the work was excellent.
The project was complicated by my (unexpectedly) very muddy backyard and the crew took exceptional care not to damage the grass and to avoid leaving ruts in the wet areas. Much appreciated, guys. The crew arrived on time, hauled off all the wood and debris, and left my backyard looking better than it did before they began their work. Kudos all around. I chose not to have the stumps removed because of where the trees were located in a mulched, woody area of the backyard and instructed Steve to cut them as close to the ground as possible - which was done as requested.
I give Payne's Tree Service a 5-Star Excellent rating. I know who to call when I need tree removal/trimming services in the future. He followed up the next day with a courtesy call to make sure I was happy with the work as completed. I assured him that I was.
P.S. The day after he finished my job, he began a project for my neighbor - who obviously was equally impressed by the work he did for us. Thanks, Steve!
